Why Watch? Because sometimes a waste of time can be beautiful and hilarious.

This beat poem from Tim Minchin tells the story of a dinner party where a young stranger gets the author’s goat by claiming the goat has supernatural spiritual powers. It’s the tale of one man, drunk on wine, rhyming his way through arguments about psychics and science, deep belief and debunking.

It’s animated in a minimalist style that works really well and gives the story another dimension. Plus, it’s an exercise in fun futility.

What Will It Cost? Just 10 minutes of your time.

Does it get better any better than that?
